    Can somebody confirm if the top portion comes off? I dont want to pry it open! It seems it may require a Zephyr type small clockwork to power the governor. The following 3 links might give an idea on type of movement needed...

    Yes, that is what I was/am also thinking. There is a hole in the top inside. But for the mechanism to sit in there, the top of the boiler would need to be opened. I am wanting a definitive answer if top indeed is openable. I had told my guy that probably governor sits on top, its shaft goes in...

As per the SunDial Farm website, " The animation movement is housed in the top, wound through the back and spins the governor for approximately 3 hours when wound." This is the portion I am...

    A nazi cuckoo clock? Locked Thread

    RM, I fully share your sentiments about the black and bleak history behind the clock. But it was NOT THE CLOCK which made that dark history but the people who did that. Just the way the roads and buildings etc built/commissioned by those condemnable people are not offensive, similarly this clock...

    I think date will change 12 hours later!! What happened is whenni got these here, it was in transit for a day and half. When i set the time in my home in second half of 11th, i didnt go second round (1-12 and then 12 to 3PM). Hence date may change at 3 PM i think. (I will keep an eye on it)...

    Hi Dan Thanks for your comment. Wonder why dont you like 'doing this', afterall you are educating me by showing what I am mistaking and where I am erring.
